The Accomodationism Debate

On his blog "Why Evolution is True" Jerry Coyne gives 17 links to the current debate on Accommodationism which make interesting reading, and may be relevant to our meeting on 18th June.

His main argument, in his original article, is that some scientific organisations are biased in their support of those who consider evolution philosophically compatible with religious belief, in the hope of encouraging other religious believers to come to the same accommodation, while at the same time asking those who take an atheist viewpoint to be quiet and not rock the scientific boat.
